The great-sounding Badwater 1216 is built with a solid mahogany set neck with rosewood fretboard, 2 Alnico humbuckers and a classic-style single cutaway. The scale length is a traditional 24 3/4" for vintage punch. Each 1216 guitar body has been distressed individually by the AXL workshop, so no two are alike. The 1216 comes with carefully antiqued pickguard, tone and volume knobs, and anodized tuning machines, bridge assembly and strap buttons for a unique look and vintage feel.

Available finishes: Matte Sunburst and Antique Brown.
